We gotta 'fess up that we are incredibly immensely impressed that someone of Mr. Moore's stature woulda so openly and affirmatively express his delight in our Dino as Matt Helm.

B. Clay Moore describes his 5 favorite spy stories
The KILLERS writer describes his favorite spy stories in movies, comics, and more

B. Clay Moore is currently writing Killers for Valiant Entertainment, a story about five former MI6 ninja agents who have each been tasked by their former sensei to complete a deadly task, but for a great reward. Here, Moore lists his five favorite spy stories.
Most of my favorite spy stories stem from film, although I’ve enjoyed my share of spy novels and comics involving spies. From an early age I was fascinated by spy stories of the past, particularly the wave of James Bond-inspired films from the mid-to-late ’60s. Here are, if not my top five, are five of my favorite spy stories:
The Matt Helm movies, starring Dean Martin
Look, these are not good movies. But as relics of the swinging ’60s and the explosion in spy stories after the success of James Bond (there was a similar explosion in superhero comics following the success of the “Batman” TV show), they’re priceless. Bond films were almost self-parody, but the Helm movies went way over the top, right down to the salaciously named “Helm girls” (“Lovey Cravezit,” for example). Dean Martin barely broke a sweat sailing through these four flicks (beginning with 1966 in “The Silencers”), but that’s how you want it. Bradley Cooper has been attached to an updated version.
